Pleiades and the Curriculum Effectiveness Review

Increase student understanding and performance with a viable and effective curriculum.

Curriculum Effectiveness Review:

Connect Instruction & Student Achievement

The Curriculum Effectiveness Review process uses the Pleiades dashboard to reveal gaps and redundancies. Together they increase consistent instructional practice and support the review of in-class assessment methods.

Gain New Insights through our Review

Pleiades Gain Insights

See the units and assessments targeted in your curriculum overlaid with student performance results.

  • Examine the frequency with which a skill is taught and assessed, easily identifying gaps and redundancies.
  • Compare performance and curriculum to see where a skill needs to be hit with more frequency compared to where a shift in instructional practice is needed.

Discover Correlations in Proficiency

After identifying areas of focus with your students’ performance, use our guiding questions to begin digging into the ‘hows?’ and ‘whys?’.

Perhaps students are showing success on their in-class assessments but are struggling on 3rd party assessments.

Is there potentially a difference in the types of skills both assessments use?

If we reflect on our assessment alignment, will students experience more success?
